New Jersey DECA Statewide Community Service Project

This year’s New Jersey DECA Statewide Community Service Project entitled “Food for Thought” encouraged all NJ DECA chapters to participate in fundraising efforts for the Community Food Bank of New Jersey. The statewide goal for this year’s fundraiser was $25,000, an enormous contribution to the food bank that can acquire $10 worth of foodstuffs for every $1 donated.

In total, Students who participated in the statewide project not only learned strong business and leadership skills, but also saw the value of fundraising to support and improve their community and its people.

With the help of all thirty one participating chapters, NJ DECA raised $20,298.29 for the Community Service Project. The check for the fundraised contribution will be presented to the Community Food Bank of New Jersey on May 18, 2013.
